According to Mkhwebane she was not informed of the decision to commence the process for her removal and only found out in the media.
"To date, I have not heard from the speaker. This is a violation of my rights to dignity, privacy and confidentiality and has the effect of undermining the effectiveness of this very important constitutional institution."
She said although she hoped Modise would accede to her request and the matter is resolved amicably, she was in touch with her legal team.
Mkhwebane, however, said if she does get removed she would accept the decision as it would be God's plan.
“Yes if the process of parliament leads to my removal, it will be God’s way of doing that, his will be done. I’m in this position to serve, to change the lives of the people and he [God] used the people in parliament to put me here and if he’ll use them to remove me, so be it,” Mkhwebane said.
She also said she was concerned that state institutions were being used to target her, responding to weekend reports that the South African Revenue Services and the Hawks were looking into her tax affairs.
She said she wanted to assure South Africans that she was a law-abiding citizen and hoped the investigation would be conducted in good faith.
"I am, however, concerned about what appear to be an abuse of state institutions to settle scores. It is a well-known fact that I have conducted and continue to conduct investigations that have not gone down well with certain sections of society. Some of those matters involve Sars."
